Butternut is best suited for cooked applications such as roasting, toasting, steaming, sautéing, baking, braising, and grilling. It can be sliced into rounds, wedges, or cubes and added to curries, chilli, soups, stews, risotto, a filling for tacos, enchiladas, empanadas, and ravioli. Butternut can be used in baked goods such as pies, bread, and muffins. It pairs well with sage, thyme, bay leaf, apple, cinnamon, pear, shallots, pecans, butter, cream, feta cheese, ground beef, sausage, and bacon.
To store, whole Butternut Pumpkin is best kept in a cool, dry, and dark place. If Pumpkin is cut, wrap tightly in cling wrap and place it in the fridge.
